  • Amazing hotel! I will drive to San Diego just to stay here
  • A lot of fun to be had in this somewhat campy hotel from the 40s. The Johnny Weismuller designed pool is a constant party.
  • I love the pool!
  • This pool is nasty. Yeastiness and pregnancies via the unwashed hipsters that swim here.
  • You definitely want a room poolside. 110% worth the upgrade!!!
  • Poolside room was given to me because I asked for a good view. Front desk attendant was extremely nice. I will definitely be staying here when I return. Only small problem was the thin walls. Awesome.
  • ==D just the
  • Po Boy Benny for Brunch.
  • The staff at the front desk and at the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. They gave me ideas as to what to do with my trip to San Diego while I was there. They were a great team.
  • Hit the pool. You're a fool if you don't.
  • Great music: BLUES SPECTERS BAND
  • Favorite hotel in San Diego!
  • No more continental breakfast that's a bummer!!!!
  • Think Melrose Place circa 1950's, I love it!!!
  • Lafayette featured in Here's the Deal in this week's Reader.
  • Pleasantly surprised how low key and comfortable this hotel is.
  • More like a motel
  • This place is a cross between a Motel 6 and the Beverly Hills Hotel... the result is an Ace Hotel type of experience.
  • Really amazing hotel. GREAT pool, though the parties can be loud.
  • A nice (but slightly pricey) place to hang by the pool for the day, if you'd like.
